This is a meetup to discuss the possibility of starting a working group to build Mendel RepRap in HackerspaceKL
RepRap is a free desktop 3D printer capable of printing
plastic objects. Since many parts of RepRap are made from plastic and
RepRap can print those parts, RepRap can be considered a self-replicating
machine – one that anyone can build given time and materials.
The purpose of this meeting is to start a group to work on a Mendel reprap. - ie be involved in building one and then later with
the knowledge – build their own.
Besides learning how to build a machine that can build itself (and other parts, of course), members will gain some knowledge of CAD, CADCAM, mechanical engineering and circuitry. All that is needed is to be mechanically inclined (good but not essential), and the desire to override deficiency.
This meeting is open for all. For more information, please refer to the following blog:
We also have a Google group at http://groups.google.com/group/MAYReprap

HackerpaceKL Open Day, Monday, 29th March, 2010. 8-10pm. Meet the faces behind HackerspaceKL. Check out what we are up to.
This will be an opportunity for non-members to check out HackerspaceKL, meet the faces behind HackerspaceKL, see what we are up to, and hang out. There will be a few presentations – one would be regarding HackerspaceKL (the past, the present, and the future), and another one on Arduino. There will be toys to play with. You can try your hands at desoldering. Or you can check out RuFI0′s remote-controlled helicopter with a wireless camera attached to it. Event starts at 8pm.
